William E. Park, President of Simmons College 

A Message from President Park 

Microcosm is a book about people — the people who inhabited 
"the little world" of Simmons College during 1957-58. For you 
who are seniors, it is especially a book of memories. When you 
look through the pages, you will have a feeling, no doubt, of 
warmth and happiness as you remember the close friends you 
made whose companionship contributed so greatly to your hap- 
piness and well-being. You will remember with pleasure your 
participation in the many activities, social and cultural, that 
filled your days and nights. You will remember the faculty and 
their constant concern that you should grow in knowledge and 
wisdom, that you might become mature women equipped to live 
full and useful lives. It is my hope that in the years ahead when- 
ever you read this book you will be proud of the use you have 
made of your Simmons education. 

The book Microcosm for the seniors might be considered a rec- 
ord of the past; for the underclassmen it should be a guide for 
the future. Here, displayed in type and photography, is the 
framework of your life at Simmons College — your work and 
your play. I hope what you see here will inspire you to enter 
more fully into this life. You are in the fortunate position of 
being able to create the pleasant memories that you will have of 
Simmons College when you graduate. You have time to deter- 
mine what will fill the pages of the Microcosm to be published 
your senior year. 

Microcosm for the faculty and staff is a book of adventure. 
For us it records one more year in the life of an institution which 
has been in existence now for fifty-six years. To us, the adven- 
ture in higher education at Simmons is always an exciting and 
inspiring one. When we look back over the year, we are glad 
that many things were accomplished which we think good. But 
we look forward to the year ahead and another chance to strength- 
en and broaden these accomplishments. 

Every graduating class, collectively as well as individually, is 
missed at Simmons College, for each class seems to have some 
distinguishing characteristics of its own. We shall follow the 
careers of the members of the class of 1958 with pride and some 
measure of satisfaction and always a friendly interest. We look 
forward to your visits to the College and your help and support 
in the years ahead. Every good wish to each of you in the Class 
of 1958. 


Here are the men and 

women who have been our 

guides through Simmons, who 

are Simmons to us. We owe much 

to them, for they have directly and 

indirectly influenced the formation of 

our ideas and the shaping of our lives.

In Memoriam 

Evangeline Hall Morris came to 
Simmons in 1934 and was ap- 
pointed Director of the School of 
Nursing in 1949, a position she 
held till her death on January 12, 
1958. As an administrator, she 
secured accreditation for the 
Bachelor's and Master's Program 
in Nursing at Simmons. Her staff 
and professional co-workers ap- 
preciated her understanding and 
her ability to meet the needs of 
others without dispute and with- 
out imposing on them her own 
wishes. Mrs. Morris had a zest 
for living and tireless energy for 
her profession and her neighbor- 
hood and community enterprises. 
She had a bright spirit, a keen 
mind, and a deep concern for 
people. Simmons has lost a dis- 
tinguished leader and teacher, 
and a loyal friend.

Outwardly, the classes seem indis- 
tinguishable. But each girl, as 
she shares the struggles and 
successes of her class, de- 
velops a spirit of loyalty 
to it. This sharing sets 
the classes apart and

Simmons Hall, as new to the College as the Class of 1961. 


Freshman Class Officers: Beryl Olson, 
Betty Neary, Paula Hirsh, Marjorie 
Frost, President; Ila Schmidt. 


Class of 1961 

This is the end of the first year at Simmons for 
those in the Class of 1961. They keep reminding 
themselves not to judge the next three years by 
this one, with its confusions and contradictions. 
But at the same time, this is the great year for 
dis.covery. There are so many subjects to choose 
from and so many schools. Although the Fresh- 
man may have entered Simmons with a definite 
idea of what she wanted, the bewildering array 
of courses, each sounding so promising, often 
diverts her attention. Of all the years at Sim- 
mons this is perhaps the shortest, with each day 
opening new horizons. And the events of this 
year are those that the Simmons girl always re- 

A favorite freshman activity — talking things over in the Lounge.

Class officers were Paula Berkman, Saundra Baker, President; Betty Frank, Barbara Safier. 


The Sophomore year is the one of becoming a 
definitive class unit. Gone is that faintly un- 
settled feeling of the Freshman year. Faces and 
names are more familiar; some girls find them- 
selves becoming class leaders. This is your first 
year in the School you decided on last year. It 
is also the year of receiving the class ring and 
knowing that you are finally over the hump. It is 
during this year that you make many of the friends 
whom you will probably keep for the rest of your 
life. By the end of Sophomore year Simmons has 
come to represent a definite purpose for you. 
The complex pieces of the puzzle of school and 
campus life have fallen into place and you are 
now able to see the pattern of your career at

Class of 1959 

It is in the Junior year that the Simmons 
girl is most firmly a part of the College. 
She is now an upperclassman, secure in her 
authority and secure in the knowledge that 
she will be a part of Simmons for another 
year. The heaviest burden of leadership and 
organization falls upon the Junior. She is 
responsible for the Freshman class as a Jun- 
ior sister, and prepares the events which 
are designed to help the Freshman through 
those first weeks. Somehow, the social events 
of the Junior year have the most signifi- 
cance. This is also the time of specialization. 
Her doubts about the "right" school have 
been resolved and she has begun to formu- 
late definite ideas about her career. It is 
both the year of security and the year of 
looking ahead. 


The year 1958 once seemed as far removed from 
reality as 1984. And yet, our four years flew by 
so rapidly that the interval between Freshmen 
Orientation Tea and graduation hardly seems 
to exist. Many of us maintained that there was 
always tomorrow or next year to do those things 
we should do, but before there was time enough, 
there was no time at all. In the years to come we 
will be able to evaluate properly our College 
years — how much we learned and how much 
we contributed. Now, we are too close to them. 
Our minds are filled with the kaleidoscopic im- 
ages of friends, classes, achievements, endless 
discussions and those wonderful transcendent 
moments that belong to this part of our lives. It 
is a short span of time, but it bridges the dis- 
tance from childhood to maturity.

It is the student within the framework of 

her organization who sets the pace of 

our college careers and gives Simmons 

its own character. The organizations 

are the necessary links between 

V our academic and social selves.

Student Government 

Student Government is the guiding organization 
of the College. Officers are chosen in an annual 
election in which all students participate. Its 
duties are to guide the activities of the College's 
organizations for the benefit of each and every 
student. It is the mediator between students, fac- 
ulty, and administration. Many of the changes 
which have come about in the academic and so- 
cial spheres at Simmons have been the result of 
the enthusiastic work of Student Government. 

This year, Stu-G concerned itself with a more 
direct identification with present students and 
those yet to come. This is being accomplished 
through such things as the Campus Guide sys- 
tem, Tradition Week, and the lending of sup- 
port to government measures which call for fed- 
eral aid to education and income tax deductions 
for tuition costs. Through this work, Stu-G 
makes a better Simmons for today's students, 
and for those of the future. 



Honor Board has three responsibilities. It tries 
infractions of the Honor Code, it educates the 
student body in the principles of the Honor 
System, and it improves the System whenever 
changes are necessary. To cultivate the Honor 
Spirit, which is so much a part of Simmons 
College tradition, the Board promotes a person- 
al sense of integrity in each student. The re- 
sponsibility of the Honor System is one of the 
first things incoming Freshmen learn. The Board 
plans and carries out an orientation program 
for new students each Fall. Honor Board, in its 
own quiet way, makes it possible for Simmons 
students to enjoy the many academic privileges 
that they otherwise would not have. 

Honor Board: Clockwise from front left: Patric- 
ia E. Grant, Constance Gray, Joan Nevins, Sharon 
Lookstein, Harriet Farrell, Roberta Brown, Gail 

Crosby, Shelia Weinstein, Jesselyn Carvalho, 
Roberta Chin. 



Academy is our honor society, giving special re- 
cognition to members of all schools who have 
carried a 3.2 average for at least 64 semester 
hours. Students may qualify for admission to 
Academy at the beginning of either the junior 
or senior year, or at the end of the senior year. 
The badge of Academy is the blue and gold rib- 
bon worn over the academic gown. It is primar- 
ily a social organization.

House President's Council 

The campus branch of Student Government, House 
Presidents' Council, is responsible for the coordination 
of social activities, house councils and other campus 
organizations. It forms policies and upholds campus 
rules and standards. Working with the Director of Stu- 
dents and the Manager of Residence, HPC is in charge 
of planning many of the campus traditions which are 
enjoyed every year. This year, the Council planned 
a day to honor Miss J. Moss Chrysler, who is not 
only Resident Head of South Hall, but who is, so to 
speak, the campus box office and cultural activities 
bureau. This is only a brief survey of the Council's 
many responsibilities which demand so much of its 
members. Also members of HPC are Martha Sartain, 
Campus Social Activity Chairman, Nancy Sandler Gav- 
rin, Secretary, Eleanor Weinstein, Fire Chief, and 
Susan Kramer, House President of Morse Hall. 



In accordance with the principle 
of its Roman predecessor, our For- 
um provides the means for keep- 
ing the student in touch with the 
rest of the world. This year, for 
example, Forum sponsored a Unit- 
ed Nations Day dinner at which 
Simmons' foreign students were 
guests. This is only one of the 
ways by which the Simmons stu- 
dent is made aware of her place 
in the world community. 

Forum : Rhoda Kaplan, Lois Kramer, Rhea Kot, Maxine Ascher, President. 


FAD is the newest and most ex- 
citing organization at Simmons. 
This is a club primarily for those 
on campus and its purpose is 
to stimulate creative expression 
among the students by means of 
films, arts, and discussions. This 
takes many forms, from the giving 
of concerts and talent shows to 
the presentation of travel slides 
taken by students. The activities 
are presented by the students for 
each other.

Social Activities 

A branch of Student Government, Social Activi- 
ties, under its Chairman, H. Lee Jansen, is re- 
sponsible for all campus recreation. A commuter 
representative from each class works with dorm 
members to plan social activities which take place 
in the Main Building, such as Student-Faculty 


NSA gives every member of the student body 
the chance to know more about other students 
in colleges throughout the country and the 
world. It promotes an honest exchange of ideas 
between members of many colleges. By meeting 
with others, we can more realistically under- 
stand and evaluate our own activities. Develop- 
ments and experiments of other colleges are 
always available for study, making improvement 
and change inevitable.

Simmons, we know what's going on all the time, 
even at exam time, when we can't get to anything 
anyway. Leading issues in politics, education, 
and other fields are the subjects of editorials 
and articles in News, as are the many aspects 
of College policy.

Microcosm — the word that had the power to 
strike terror in the hearts of its staff. They were 
subject to the tyranny of deadlines, copy and 
layouts that wouldn't jibe, lost copy and mix-ups 
in photographs. As the deadline drew nearer, 
the work seemed to become magnified so that 
it dwarfed everything, studies and social life, 
into nothingness. And yet through the seeming- 
ly endless task of organizing this yearbook came 
the knowledge and satisfaction that we were 
helping to create something that would crystal- 
lize the memories of college days for this year's 
graduating class. Each Microcosm is part of the 
history of Simmons College. It not only serves 
as a reference guide to days of the past, but as 
an inspiration to the Mic staff of each coming

Social Relations: Joyce Poulos, Carol A.

Social Relations 

Poster Committee 

Members of Social Relations serve as vol- 
unteers in the city's hospitals, clinics, and 
settlement houses. Through this work, plus 
films, speakers, and discusions which are 
open to the whole student body, students in 
the School of Social Science supplement 
their classroom studies. 

It is difficult to imagine the walls of Simmons 
without their epidermis of posters. To keep 
students informed about events in the Col- 
lege, these artists advertise the work of the 
many busy committees who have no art staffs 
of their own. 

Sock and Buskin: Rhea Kot; Shelia Levy; Vir- 
ginia Hutchinson, President. 

Sock and Buskin 

In Sock and Buskin, the Simmons dramatic 
organization, girls develop their interests 
and creative ability in either the dramatic 
or technical aspects of the theater. With the 
aid of men from nearby colleges, the Club 
presents plays under student direction. Ma- 
jor productions are given in the Spring and 
Fall. Sock and Buskin also sponsors Com- 
pets, an interclass competition. At the an- 
nual Spring banquet, keys are presented to 
those who have shown outstanding achieve- 


Ellen Richards 

The Ellen Richards Club, for the Science 
student, provides for her professional and 
social interests. Club members meet to hear 
outside speakers in their field and discuss, 
problems of mutual concern. They also take 
field trips to scientific institutions in the 
greater Boston area. 

Ellen Richards Club: Betty Hurwitz, President; 
Lois O'Grady, Doris Luke. 

The Ann Strong Club for nursing students, 
the liason between undergraduates and the 
fifth-year nurses on affiliation, set out to 
make Simmons nurses better known and 
the Simmons program better understood by 
outsiders this year. Delegates were sent to 
regional conventions. Meeting programs in- 
cluded movies and speakers from other 
nursing schools, both instructors and stu-

Through the exchange of ideas, films, and 
talks by outside speakers, the student 
learns about her profession. In this way 
she is better prepared to fulfill her duties.

Both the professional and pleasurable are com- 
bined in the activities of the Home Economics 
Club. Through various speakers and demonstra- 
tions on interior decoration, silver, dietetic in- 
ternships, and fabrics, the girls are able to see 
home economics at work. These varied programs 
stimulate interest and increase knowledge about 
various aspects of home economics. The Club 
picnic, fashion show, and banquet are some of 
the meetings which the girls plan, prepare, and 
present themselves. 

Prince Club: Seated: Barcy H. Proctor, Reina Feinberg, 
Jean- Ann Schlegel. Standing: Barbara Glass, Sue Gelula. 

Prince Club 

The students of Simmons College studying re- 
tailing are fortunate indeed to have an organi- 
zation such as the Prince Club. Sophomores, 
who are honorary members, juniors, and seniors 
of the Prince School of Retailing form the mem- 
bership of the Club. 

With the aide of its advisor, Mr. Donald K. 
Beckley, the Club is not only common grounds 
for people with similar vocational interests, but 
also acts as a liason between the Prince School, 
the main Simmons College building, and the 
working world of retailing. The annually given 
Open House was sponsored by the Prince Club 
in November of this year for the purpose of ac- 
quainting all interested Simmons students with 
the Prince program and accomplishments. 


Outing Club 

Laughter and "roughing it" is the essence of the 
Simmons Outing Club. Fall hiking in local areas, 
winter weekends with snow, skis and skates, 
and canoeing in the spring, provide healthy ex- 
ercise and relaxing enjoyment for club members. 
Weekly song-fests with affiliated MIT and a 
weekend IOCA conference at year's end com- 
plete a fun-filled schedule. 

Athletic Association 

Automatic membership in the Simmons Athletic 
Association offers every girl a wide variety of 
activities to suit individual interests and to pro- 
mote physical fitness, good sportsmanship, and 
fun. Autumn Antics, the highlight of which is 
Faculty-Student competition, includes volleyball, 
basketball, ping-pong, and swimming. This year 
the A.A. is planning a bowling jamboree and a 
skating party, and looks forward to the possibil- 
ity of a synchronized swimming group. 

Outing Club: Front: Sylvia Goldsmith, Pat- 
ricia French. Above: Jane Gilette, Barbara Holin- 
ger, Geleta Fenton. 

Judith Moody, Beverly Goodman, President; Marjorie Reider. 


Modern Dance Club 

Modern Dance Club: Meryl Gray, Hermine Levine, President; Leslie Markensohn, Norma Livingston. 

An excellent outlet for expression in the dance 
is membership in the Modern Dance Club. Under 
the capable supervision of Mrs. Greene, these 
nimble and graceful girls study technique and 
learn to choreograph their own dances. Self ex- 
pression and creativity come to the fore in inform- 
al classes, demonstrations, and the big production 
of the year presented in the spring. 


Glee Club 

In September 1957, the Glee Club became a Col- 
lege-sponsored organization. Through constant 
practice and the able direction of Burton A. Clea- 
ves, its several performances a year give Pops 
Night at Simmons, the Christmas festivities, and 
Commencement a special dignity. The Club's 
concert tours have brought Simmons an even 
greater measure of fame and respect. 

The twelve girls from the Sophomore, Junior, 
and Senior classes who are the Bluettes sing in 
close harmony everything from barbershop 
melodies to popular music for the sheer love of 
it. Although it is not an official College organiza- 
tion, no important social function would be com- 
plete without its performance. And the Blu- 
ettes are Simmons' best goodwill ambassadors 
wherever they go.

Bluettes: Roberta Bamford, Sandra Bashore, Carolyn Clark, Barbara Jenkins, Joan Dexter, Irene Jansen, Vir-

Hillel: Carol Korb, President; Muriel Finkel, Felice 
Flaks, Rosalyn Tuton. 

IVCF: Rosalie Banks, Sandra Sutherland, President; 
Barbara Stafford, Bettie Shenk. 


Through Hillel, the Jewish student can increase 
her knowledge of her religion and the different 
areas of Jewish tradition. There are any number 
of things to interest her — Hebrew studies, folk 
dancing, political discussions, and social affairs 
with other colleges. Even though she is in a sec- 
ular college she need never lose touch with her 


Membership in the Inter- Varsity Christian Fel- 
lowship provides girls with spiritual growth in 
their Christian faith. The objectives of this group 
are: to inspire faith in Jesus Christ, to under- 
stand the Bible through study and prayer meet- 
ings, and to help missionary work. 

Eastern Orthodox Club 

The purpose of the Eastern Orthodox Club is to 
provide its members with a better knowledge of 
their religion and of Eastern culture through con- 
tact with other students, religious lectures, and 
Bible studies. The Simmons club sponsors two 
cake sales and an annual Christmas dance, to 
which students of other colleges are invited. It 
is a member of the New England Federation of 
College Orthodox students. 

Orthodox Club: Catherine Siganos, Elaine Keneklis, 
President; Joyce Poulos. 


Newman Club 

Through Newman Club, Catholic students learn 
more about their faith under the guidance of the 
Paulist Fathers. The Club sponsors a dialogue 
mass, retreat weekends, and Spring Communion 
Breakfast. The busy Newmanites plan lectures 
and discussions, and a social program with other 

Christian Science 

The Christian Science Club's prime objective is 
to promote comradeship among its members and 
to help them gain insight into the meaning of 
Christian Science today. Once a year the Club 
gives a lecture open to all Simmons students. 

Newman Club: Barbara Petroske, President; Lois 
O'Grady, Janet Donovan. 

Christian Science: Gerre Hale, President; Faith 

Christian Association 

Christian Association offers Christian education 
in the form of Bible study, Christian history, and 
discussion. In affiliation with the YWCA and the 
Student Christian Movement in New England, 

girls take part in study and discussion groups, 
conferences, a retreat, and a Christmas chapel

Highlighting our years 

at Simmons is the celebration 

of those "special events" which have 

taken on all the aspects of tradition. 



We took our part this year in the wonderful 
fun and gracious dignity of Simmons' tradi- 
tions. Olde English Dinner, our medieval 
feast of turkey, plum pudding, and pageant- 
ry, left us full and happy. May Breakfast 
featured shortcake at dawn (it seemed like 
dawn), and Christmas Cotillion the glamour 
of gowns and music at dusk. Soph Auction, 
the Valentine Party, Senior-Faculty Dinner 
. . . Compets, Daisy Chain, Bib Party, Spring 
Spree, and the year had flown too quickly. 
But the memories will stay with us and with 
the classes yet to graduate, and we'll remem- 
ber the Dragon and the faculty baseball 
team long after we've forgotten the unexpec- 
ted, delightful A on that hour exam. We 
were a part of Simmons history as we laugh- 
ed, sang, and relaxed at parties and "Days" 
which were a gift to the present from the 

Daisy Chain . . . it's heavier than it looks!

"Catch a fish 
for a good cause, 
the Building Fund!' 

Auctioneer David Shepro's runners hurried "white elephants" to parents and friends. 

Sold here: equipment for the collegiate life. 

In our junior year it was our turn 
to sponsor and organize Spring Spree. 
Linda Altman and Gail Crosby were co- 
chairmen. Based on a circus theme, 
it was a gay weekend for Simmons girls 
and their parents. Beginning with the 
Glee Club Pops Concert on Friday 
night, the weekend reached its climax 
in an outdoor dance on the Alumnae 
Hall terrace and a Parents' Banquet 
on Sunday. 

The highlight was unquestionably 
Saturday's circus in the Backyard 
turned fairground. From the pony 
rides to the student-faculty baseball

There are two meanings to Simmons 
College: one is the College as 
a whole; the other, the ten 
Schools which are its parts, 
k Although they have differ- 

ent professional aims they 
\have a mutual goal, the 
education of a woman who 
is trained for her par- 
ticular profession but 
still has a hroad

Director of the School of Business 

School of Business 

The Business School graduate can apply for any 
business position with confidence. Seven pro- 
grams of study cover almost every phase of busi- 
ness activity. Typing, shorthand, and filing are 
perhaps the least of the Business student's wor- 
ries; she learns these during her Junior, and in 
part, her Senior year, while her major interest 
is in the study of Business Communications, Law, 
and Accounting, plus a wide variety of electives 
in the Business courses. A large number of lib- 
eral arts courses provide her with a breather 
from her more factual work, and equip her to 
live in a world where business is only half of life. 
As a graduate, she is ready to assume jobs that 
would daunt less well-prepared career women. 
She is able to work with men in a man's world 
and more than likely, she can show them a trick 
or two.

J. Garton Needham, 

Acting Director of the School of Education 

School of 

In answer to the demand for teachers, Simmons 
has established a School of Education, which 
has two primary objectives: (1) a thorough mas- 
tery of the subject matter, and (2) a sound tech- 
nical preparation for teaching. A student enter- 
ing the School of Education may major in one 
of the following: English, French, Spanish, His- 
tory and Social Studies, Chemistry, Biology, 
Physics, and Mathematics. Upon completion of 
a prescribed program, the student will be certi- 
fied for secondary teaching in Massachusetts, as 
well as in many other states. With the approval 
of the Director, the student may modify her pro- 
gram to meet the requirements of the state in 
which she hopes to teach. The School of Educa- 
tion is another instance of the way in which Sim- 
mons meets the needs of the times and broadens 
her horizons. 


Those Who Would Teacli Must First Be Taught.

Margaret L. Ross, 

Director of the School of Hoine Economics. 

School of Home Economics 

Good honiemaking is only a part of the goal that 
the School of Home Economics has set for its 
students. The little lady in the kitchen is but one 
aspect of modern woman, who must be prepared 
to earn a living if necessary, live with herself as 
an interesting, well-informed person, and run a 
home in half the time that grandmother had for 
the job. The courses prove that the School is do- 
ing just this. Chemistry, nutrition, home manage- 
ment, and child development — a highly varied 

program expands the once narrow field 

of Home Economics into a full-time career. Lib- 
eral arts fit into the scheme, too. By graduation, 
the Home Ec girl has fulfilled all her hopes — 
intellectual, professional, and domestic.

School of Library Science 


The School of Library Science is a leader in its 
field. In the varied fields of adult education, 
school and public libraries, public relations, the 
Armed Services, and group work with children 
and adults, the Simmons librarian is outstand- 
ingly successful because of her exceptional 
training. During her undergraduate years, she 
learns the precise tasks of reference, cataloging, 
the Dewey Decimal system, and the Library of 
Congress classification. She has a reading knowl- 
edge of at least one foreign language, and takes 
courses in literature, the arts, psychology, sociol- 
ogy, and economics. Through her services, we 
are enriched by the wonderful world of books.

Director of the School 

of Library Science.

The foundation of good health — cleanliness.

School of Nursing 

The Nursing student is truly one of the most ded- 
icated members of our College. Her infrequent 
visits to the cafeteria, her ever-open textbooks, 
are not the marks of shyness or withdrawal. She 
just doesn't have the time, and strangely enough, 
she thrives on it. The achievement of a "broad 
scientific, academic, and professional base" is 
hers only after five years of liberal arts, science, 
and on-the-job hospital training. She learns the 
complex and fascinating theories of her profes- 
sion from the best doctors and nurses in a city 
known throughout the world for its medical 
giants. Her chances for that hallowed and Uto- 

pian state of "adjustment" are very definitely 
superior; she has tackled the routine jobs of 
sterilizing and scrubbing with as much pride as 
when she has taken part in surgical discussions 
and demonstrations. No one has as much fun as 
a Nursing student, and no one works harder to 
earn the laughs and funny experiences in her 
busy, responsible world. Lucky the man who 
snares a Simmons angel of mercy who can soothe 
his inflamed, cold-ridden chest with medication, 
the soliloquy from Hamlet, and tales from the 
Massachusetts General Hospital. 


There were breathers in the livineroom to talk things over. 

Donald K. Beckley, 

Director of the Prince School of Retailing. 


Prince School of Retailing 

Fashion, finance, and madame's fancy are inte- 
grated in this business world of glamour and de- 
signers' whims. But Retailing is a business world, 
as Prince graduates are well aware. Courses in 
advertising, store management, market research, 
finance, and economics are necessary to train 
these career girls to be adept in handling the prob- 
lems of personnel, labor relations, the sales 
forces, and administration. The girls also become 
acquainted with the elements of an attractive and 
effective appearance, for both business and per- 
sonal use. Constant change in the world of fash- 
ion demands that those who live in it be both in- 
telligent and ingenious. Prince people know the 
art of adaptation to this change. Retailing offers 
a dynamic chance to keep ahead of the times to 
girls who thrive on excitement. 

We had lectures on the fine points of retailing. 


Raymond F. Bosworth, 

Director of the School of Publication. 

School of Publication 

Dorothy F. Williams, 

Managing Editor of the Simmons Review. 

The School of Publication is the School of varia- 
tions on one theme — the value of communica- 
tion. Our world is dependent upon those artisans 
who work with type, ink and T-squares to per- 
petuate those elusive thoughts which shape the 
culture and destiny of man. During the Pub stu- 
dent's college years, she is not always so concern- 
ed with this elevated concept: she is more aware 
of the tremendous amount of detail that goes into 
any publication through the "traumatic" person- 
al experience of trying to correlate all the infor- 
mation she has gathered from her classes in every 
conceivable area where the printed word is used. 
And yet, when she is on her own after gradua- 
tion she soon finds that she is using every bit of 
knowledge obtained in her courses.

The girl in the School of Social Science specializes in one 
of its four programs, public administration, economic anal- 
ysis, community work, or psychological measurements. She 
is not confined to classroom studies, for the School empha- 
sizes research outside the College so that she may gain ex- 
perience in putting theories to practical use. The student 
supplements her knowledge through field trips and volun- 
teer work. She may even leave Simmons for a semester, 
spending it in another school, or she may conduct an in- 
dependent research project for a semester in another city, 
for example, Washington, D.C. Whether she leaves Boston 
or not, the School of Social Science is still home base.

Robert F. Rutherford, 

Director of the School of Social Work. 


The Simmons School of Social Work is the most 
unique of all her Schools. For this is the area of 
study which the undergraduate never touches 
and yet for which Simmons in known throughout 
the world. It is a two-year graduate program of 
full-time study which leads to the degree of Master 
of Science. The courses are so arranged that the 
students become a united group with an intense 
spirit of loyalty motivated by the excitement of 
both individual discovery and the mutual ex- 
change of what they have learned. This in itself 
sets the School apart from methods used elsewhere 
in graduate schools which do not allow for united 
growth in the understanding of the purposes of 
social work. As the ages and the range of expe- 
rience of the students are so varied, there is an 
even greater value to the Simmons principle of 
working and studying together.

School of Science 

The distinguishing characteristic of girls in the 
School of Science is, surprisingly enough, that 
they do not spend their four years locked up in 
laboratories with their eyes glued to test tubes. 
This is what the Simmons program is trying to 
avoid. The student in the School of Science does 
devote much of her time to exploring the myster- 
ious elements which make up our truly extraor- 
dinary existence, but she also is equally informed 
about the things that have concerned man's mind 
in the various arts. She is, unlike so many of her 
scientific contemporaries, very much aware of 
the world around her, with the double advantage 
of having bad a scientific plus a liberal arts 

John A. Timm, 

Director of the School of Science.
